Hi Chris;

So far so good [smile] I'm at issue 49; happy to have the hull planked up...not sure when Bobby will catch up[smile] specifically I'm wondering what he will do about the deck planking; wash? stain? Can't go much further until I have an idea there...
How about you?

Hi Bill

Unfortunately, I am stalled at issue 22!  DeAgostini have been telling me that issue 23 is out of stock and has been for the last 8 months, did yours arrive ok?
They promised me a call back today but again nothing, I asked them for a soft copy of the build instructions, they said they would send but nothing turned up!  Issue 62 arrived last week but I am unable to continue as I don't know what to do in issue 23.  It's really frustrating!

What technique did you use for cutting the cannon portals?  I have a dremel multi tool which I will try in due course.

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris,

I don't have issue 23 either, but for the portals I used Bobby's video - I seem to remember he did that quite carefully. Also, there is a very comprehensive build diary available here: http://forum.model-space.co.uk/default.aspx?g=topics&f=17&p=2  

Will have everything you need to know! So get cracking [smile]

For the portals, the best actually is to cut the portal out (using the square template) with a sharp craft knife - I use a number 11 scalpel (I have an endless supply). I don't cross-hatch the way the instructions suggest, simply score along the outline horizontally and vertically. A single blade will last surprisingly long. Concerning the dremel tool, I also use mine extensively to trim and champfer the planks - very time-saving; however, when using the tool to cut the gun portals the result wasn't so neat, so the knife worked better.

Just shout if I can offer any other advice!

btw. How does one upload images to this site?

Hi Bill

Thanks for the reply and advice.

To upload pictures, set yourself up a photo bucket account if you don't have one already and upload the required photo.  When you are looking at the picture in photobucket, there is a box to the right with a title of "IMG", click on the box, a note will pop up to say copied and then paste it in to your post like this:-



It's not the Victory but all I had to hand.  

Regards

Is the Victory build on indefinite hold?  No updates since episode 15 back in February...

Hi,

So what's actually happened with the step by step videos after episode 16? I've just started with this model and found them fantastic to follow. Did Bobby finish the model?

Absolutely no idea[frown] No response from Bobby to queries either. I have been slowly crawling along (and doing other stuff as well..). Bit of a shame as I subscribed to this kit specifically so I could follow Bobby...see above for the build diary.

I have since heard from Bobby via Facebook and he said he had to stop because of other commitments but does intend to carry on in the near future. So that's quite positive.
